When I google "Miami jet ski rental" I also get a lot of rental companies, but they're only offering yamahas... I want to ride skis like the rxp and gtr, so I can compare them to my spark(and because it's fun) Yamahas is so slow looking and straight ahead driving boats in my opinion...

I'm not so sure rental companies offer these skis, so maybe it's possible to pay for a test ride at a dealer? Seems kinda weird walking into a seadoo store as a tourist, asking for a demo ride...

That's unfortunate, maybe you just have to wait more for some of them to add the spark to their fleet.

I'm surprised more places don't rent out the Spark. it is so affordable. I think it might be just because they are so new. When places have to replace their jet skis they will likely consider the Spark.

Just don't forget that they probably have PWC's on their docks that still run well and give a similar experience, then there's cost. Many things to factor in. It would be of poor logic to not factor those facts in ;)

I live in Miami and I don't know any that rent out SeaDoos. All Yams to the best of my knowledge. Also it sucks renting because they only let you go between point A and point B which is about a one block span. (I used to rent before I moved here) They run about $75 for a half hour rental. Cheaper in the keys for ski rentals. If you are planning on traveling through the keys during your stay you could search those rental places maybe they have some seadoos.

I just remember taking them out in Sarasota while I was visiting my grandfather. This was a little while ago now, but it was fun. No complaints.

I had to take the license test before getting to ride. There were about 5 questions and then I passed. LOL, what a joke of a test.

wow never heard of a test. I Miami the only 5 questions to rent would be

1) are you over 21?
2) do you have a drivers license?
3) habla english?
4) are you drunk?
5) okay so are you sober enough to drive?

LOL.

Not sure Patrick. I've never been further north in FL than West Palm Beach.

Best bet is to just keep doing what you are doing and google jetski rental places and ask :) Also the jetski message boards in my signature each have threads by area so if you ask in the FL ones they may be able to tell you . Good luck!
